Hi Pete
We had a great evening and you were right - The Troubador is an excellent musician who went out of his way to accommodate our needs
Kind Regards and thanks for your help in finding The Troubadour.

10/10!!!! The guys absolutely killed it!! We were so impressed with their set and so were all of our guests. Would definitely recommend them and he was very professional to deal with even though we weren't the easiest of clients.
Thanks again,

Thanks so much to Dave for helping make our party a huge success – a great night of dancing was had by all and lots of favourable comments from guests during and since Friday night. We wouldn't be surprised if some people from the party get in touch to book the Troubador for other occasions!
Kind Regards,
Lindsey Haagh

Hi Kellie
Yes, we were very happy with David. He got the crowd up and dancing from beginning to end! He was also very personable and easy to deal with. Unfortunately he was late starting as our speeches went quite a while over. We think he did a great job!

Hi David
I am happy to provide feedback about last Wednesday’s event, as there was unanimous positive feedback from our Rotary Club regarding the fun time they all had. That enjoyment was due to a large part to your music and the tailoring of it to the occasion.
So thank you for the evening and I trust you have a Merry Christmas and a very enjoyable New Year.
Kind regards
David Howden
